There is no summer break for Polyphony Digital: Gran Turismo Producer Kazunori Yamauchi teased new cars coming to GT7 next week - although there only being three this time around might hint at part of the team enjoying some seaside sunshine.

Speaking of sand, the first two cars would not be afraid of dipping their wheels in it. Gran Turismo takes no side in the most famous rivalry in the rally world and will introduce both a Subaru Impreza STI and a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution in this upcoming update. The Pleiades are a bit fresher that the diamonds though, as players are getting the 2004 version of the Subaru, known as the STI 8, the GDB (second generation chassis, first facelift), or as the blobeye in reference to its headlights, one of the most appreciated Impreza designs.

Meanwhile, the Mitsubishi is nearly 10 years older as Gran Turismo fans will be presented with the 1995 Evo 3, the latest version of the initial CE9A chassis. It bumped up its visual agressivity compared to the Evo 1 and 2, starting a new styling trend for sports sedans.

The final car in the update will be much more modern, but not less striking by any means: Designed in collaboration with Adrian Newey, the Aston Martin Valkyrie was initially developed with the new ACO Hypercar endurance racing class in mind. With a 1000+hp naturally aspirated Cosworth V12 revving above 10.000 RPM, and downforce levels produced by the open underbody being just shy of 2 tons, the Valkyrie will be quite the experience and should outperform many race cars on the track despite being a road car.

Sliding into GT7's garages soon? The Toyota GR Corolla might be available in August already. Image credits: Toyota

On a sidenote, Toyota has also recently mentioned the GR Corolla would make its virtual debut soon in Gran Turismo. Considering the Toyota Gazoo Racing Gran Turismo Cup still has a round with a yet unspecified car planned in August on its schedule, players can fully expect the Corolla to be deployed within the next two months to be used for that race.

Regarding next week's update, it is unknown at this point if other features or content such as tracks will be added, so stay tuned for the update release!

Global motorsports enjoyer, long time simracer, Gran Turismo veteran, I've been driving alongside top drivers since the dawn of online pro leagues on Gran Turismo, and qualified for the only cancelled FIA GTC World Tour. I've left aside competitive driving in 2020 to dedicate myself to IGTL, a simracing organisation hosting high quality events for pro racers and customers, to create with friends the kind of events we wished we could have had. We strive to provide the best events for drivers and the best content for viewers, and want to help the simracing scene grow and shine further in the global esports scene.

Maybe one day when the PS5 is £200 and the PSVR2 the same I'll try this. At the moment I just can't be bothered until this drip feed of content ends and the game is officially done.

I always bought consoles day 1 or as near as but with the last generation everything was also available on PC so I couldn't be bothered a series X or PS5 so far. There's barely any exclusive content now that it's worth buying consoles for.
 
GT7 is already in a state where once the end credits roll there's still loads more to do. I'm having a break as I recently got to the credits, but I still have several cafe races to do, along with the top 2 tier licences, multiple mission challenges, and I've only done 1 of the many endurance races. The game's base content is definitely all there now and these updates are legit bonus / non-essential content.
 
They need to fix the game economy but instead they give us new cars like that will change anything...
 
It would be nice to see less complaints on what we have nowadays. Just enjoy what you have. I grew up with pong. So the games today are the rolls Royce under the games. We forget to see how beautiful all the stuff is. Of course it is not perfect but hey are you?
